Self-detection in robots: a method based on detecting temporal contingencies

  title={Self-detection in robots: a method based on detecting temporal contingencies},
  author={Alexander Stoytchev},
This paper addresses the problem of self-detection by a robot. The paper describes a methodology for autonomous learning of the characteristic delay between motor commands (efferent signals) and observed movements of visual stimuli (afferent signals). The robot estimates its own efferent-afferent delay from self-observation data gathered while performing motor babbling, i.e., random rhythmic movements similar to the primary circular reactions described by Piaget. After the efferent-afferent… CONTINUE READING
